The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) has endorsed the Harley Academy’s level 7 aesthetic course with CPD accreditation.
The accreditation ensures that the Harley Academy has met BCAM’s strict guidelines, some of which include: ‘The event should be appropriate for trained (career grade) doctors, clinical content must follow all appropriate patient consent and confidentiality policies and the principles outlined in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice guidelines, and the teachers/facilitators should have relevant expertise, knowledge and skills to deliver the education programme within the specific subject/s identified’.
Paul Charlson, president of BCAM said, “We are delighted that level 7 training, as outlined in the recent Health Education England report, is being adopted by training organisations. BCAM supports any educational organisation that delivers to this standard. BCAM are therefore delighted that Harley Academy is the leading the way."
Founding director of Harley Academy, Dr Tristan Mehta said, "We set out to improve patient safety through raising the standard of education in aesthetics. Through adhering to the HEE recommendations and seeking regulation from Ofqual, we are excited to offer a fully comprehensive postgraduate qualification in injectables that is both flexible and affordable, and fills a much-needed gap in aesthetics education.”
He continued, “We are very proud that BCAM has recognised that our course represents this new era in aesthetics. We also expect that this higher standard of education will propagate throughout practitioners, and other course providers, and ultimately lead to a new standard of patient care."
